NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #180 ~ 12-01-18]

Political viewpoints never merit a moment’s serious consideration at the Purple Bat Lounge…why should they receive special treatment? No topic garners such consideration at the bar, certainly not politics, especially not on a Saturday evening. Our most recent episode nearly proved the exception to the rule, however. Uncle Morty’s truck pulled up, mid-episode, and aced yet another of the bar’s lawn jockeys on the sidewalk out front. Once the dust and plaster chips had settled, DJ Lee-Roy took receipt of a small canister marked Marionberry Pie. Which spurred his immediate search for a ‘willing intern’…and, frankly, that’s about as political as it got. Otherwise, the Madison theater advertised their idea of a mental health double feature and Reeshard played nearly three dozen tunes, supporting the vibe of energized apathy for which the establishment is justly renowned. There was more, of course, all of which is better heard than described. You can do that for yourself, simply by clicking in the right spot immediately below…

Double Trouble

Another Saturday night on Brush Street, and within the Purple Bat Lounge the equation remained the same: You want it. We got it. Let’s do it! Nearly three dozen songs played, every last one of them a keeper. The Madison hosted a twin-bill designed to let you know that science is not your friend. Uncle Morty parked his grim-looking former ice cream truck at the curb, dropping off a small canister of something labeled ‘Jah Goo,’ the latter designed to let you know that Uncle Morty is indeed your friend. DJ Lee-Roy restated his affection for nutty French actor Béatrice Dalle. Reeshard back announced each set per usual and gave a shout-out to Pasadena’s annual Doo-Dah Parade. Otherwise, the dogs barked and the train rolled on. Click in the right spot immediately below and you can pretend to have spent an evening in the bad part of town, without getting anything on your outfit…

We bumped softly down a hill toward an open field that seemed to be a military graveyard, filled with rows and rows of austere, identical markers over soldiers’ graves. I’d never before come across this cemetery. On the farther side of the field, just beyond the curtains of snow, the sky was torn away and the angels were descending out of a brilliant blue summer, their huge faces streaked with light and full of pity. The sight of them cut through my heart and down the knuckles of my spine, and if there’d been anything in my bowels I would have messed my pants from fear.

Georgie opened his arms and cried out, “It’s the drive-in, man!”

“The drive-in . . .” I wasn’t sure what these words meant.

“They’re showing movies in a fucking blizzard!” Georgie screamed.

“I see. I thought it was something else,” I said.

We walked carefully down there and climbed through the busted fence and stood in the very back. The speakers, which I’d mistaken for grave markers, muttered in unison. Then there was tinkly music, of which I could very nearly make out the tune. Famous movie stars rode bicycles beside a river, laughing out of their gigantic, lovely mouths. If anybody had come to see this show, they’d left when the weather started. Not one car remained, not even a broken-down one from last week, or one left here because it was out of gas. In a couple of minutes, in the middle of a whirling square dance, the screen turned black, the cinematic summer ended, the snow went dark, there was nothing but my breath.

Denis Johnson, “Emergency” from Jesus’ Son (1993)

To say that Halloween brings out the best — whatever that might constitute — in the patrons of the Purple Bat Lounge is to understate the case somewhat. The bar’s management sponsors its annual costume competition, with the winner taking home a bottle of Four Roses. (It was later rumored that said bottle never actually made it home, having been traded for a hot bag in the parking lot.) Amidst last Saturday’s spooky revels, DJ Lee-Roy marveled at the imaginative drag on display. The dog was disappointed to have co-host Reeshard point out that the redhead done up as Lindsay Lohan was wearing an ankle bracelet and, as such, in all probability actually was Lindsay Lohan. So it went: Many sinister novelty records played; Uncle Morty stopped by with an array of a seasonally appropriate offerings on his dingy truck; bartender LaWanda kept the Lee-Roy™ cocktails flowing; and thus barely anyone remembered how it all ended. You, too, can enjoy the defining soundtrack to our favorite holiday, simply by clicking immediately below. Just watch out for the candy apples, OK?

On this particular Saturday evening, DJ’s Reeshard & Lee-Roy seized the moment to reflect as No Condition Is Permanent rounded another 25th episode milepost. They pulled their favorite tunes from the past 24 episodes, as has long been their wont when significant anniversaries occur. Lee-Roy’s friends at The Madison Theater, to honor the occasion, brought back a very Psychotronic™ two-headed twin bill, and Uncle Morty marked the occasion by delivering an old favorite, albeit one with unexpected side-effects. But isn’t that always the way? Over 3 dozen fantastic tunes played and so much else happened as well. You, o lucky creature, you can enjoy all this without venturing out of the house, simply by clicking immediately below…

Whatever occurred last Saturday evening down at the Purple Bat Lounge, was doubtless the sum of one of those oft-mentioned perfect storms. Inhaling but the briefest whiff of the bar’s atmosphere would reveal the constituent elements of said conflagration: A somewhat acrid aroma, the result of several Madagascar cockroaches tossed (by local “gentleman of leisure” Lotsa Poppa) at the bug zapper hanging above the bar’s Outdoor Patio™; a strange, sex-as-means-to-revenge twin-bill screening at the Madison; three dozen tunes of mob inciting quality; DJ Lee-Roy connecting with a vial of Diablo — the last thing he needed, really — as delivered by Uncle Morty’s truck; and appearing (almost literally) at the beginning of this week’s episode, an Onassis Coney Island. This last item, a purportedly edible gift from Lee-Roy to his designated human, fellow DJ Reeshard, one which said human came to regret almost immediately upon ingestion. A great many causes and still more effects, the seeds of this end-of-summer carnival gone so very wrong, now available to you merely by clicking a few pixels to the south:

NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #173 ~ 09-22-18]

And so we survive yet another Saturday evening on Brush St. in downtown Detroit. Autumn has officially begun, though you wouldn’t know it to look at the thermometer. Inside the Purple Bat Lounge, patrons endure the usual mayhem while waiting for bartender LaWanda to return from the basement and fill their drink orders. DJ’s Reeshard & Lee-Roy man the wheels of steel, crafting four sets of music for friends and ‘umm-friends’ alike. (You know what we’re talking about, right? “And this is my…ummm…friend.”) All is well with our version of the world until, in rapid succession: Uncle Morty’s truck pulls up; something called American Beauty tops this week’s Cheeba Chart™; and Lee-Roy, already under its influence, meets a new squeeze named Elviry (who wears Frye bootseesh). If you’re thinking none of this bodes well, you’d be on the same page as Reeshard, the latter having to cope with the results. Click below and learn how it all turned out…

The summer is winding down. As the days grow shorter and cooler, opportunities to visit the notorious Outdoor Patio in back of the Purple Bat Lounge (in truth, just some plastic folding chairs set out near the trash cans) are fewer and farther between. DJ Lee-Roy optimizes his time in what passes for the great outdoors in downtown Detroit, waiting to see what new insects Lotsa Poppa has brought from Bwana Don‘s pet store to throw at the bug zapper. Brush St.’s favorite pit bull exercised due diligence throughout, broadcast professional that he is, turning up in the booth at intervals to spin some great tunes, the balance filled out by his partner and designated human, Reeshard. The latter makes apologies to the listenership on this particular evening, enumerating the reasons why ‘Go Nude For Luxuria Music’ Day didn’t materialize this summer. Other good things happen, but we’re hard pressed to remember just what. Click below and all shall be revealed…

Last Saturday evening had it all: That inescapable swampy midwestern end-of summer ambiance; nearly three dozen fantastic tunes, any one among them capable of breaking your lease; both sides of the pit bull psyche laid bare (the dichotomy in question being irksome vs. outright annoying); the saga of DJ Lee-Roy’s nemesis, our local animal control officer and the latter’s unfortunate shorts; a threatened visit from Nice Guy Eddie, Lee-Roy’s local frenemy; a rundown of the latest strains available on Uncle Morty’s truck; and a mission statement for the show as delivered by the most famous dog on Brush St.. You didn’t have to be there — though we’re grateful if you were — but now you can immerse yourself in the Purple Bat’s miasma in the comparative no-fire zone of your own living room, simply by clicking a few pixels south of this sentence…
